Our friend Val asked me about the colors I like and how they make me feel. So, here goes! Usually I like Blue tones. I agree with Val that blue tones, are calming, soothing. But I have also read that blue can be depressing. I once had an all blue living room, including carpeting, I loved it at first but it got to be too much blue! I think of the ocean and the lake I grew up swimming in when I think of blue. I also like lime green, especially in the summertime, I love this color. I like I think I look good in bright colors, whereas the pale ones wash me out.I like beige for my main color scheme in my house. Oak floors, oak cabinets, end tables, and oak dining room furniture. Our living room is beige tweed furniture with beige throw rugs. (Oak floors) I have one brown leather chair in there but the rest is beige with blue accessories in the living room. I love red, especially on other people. I once had a red coat, and I felt pretty every time I wore that coat. But if I had to pick one favorite color, it would be purple!! I guess, whether it's good or bad, I like to be noticed. If I think I look nice, I am not shy about "showing off." I also have a pink, lavender, & white patchwork quilt on our king size bed, and pink and burgundy rugs in there. It might not sound pretty, but it is! Okay, I admit, it's the little girl in me that insisted on pink. The other upstairs bedroom is varying shades of green. Okay kids, I got way too verbal and too long here, but that's kind of just how I am. I'd love to hear about the colors you like and why you like them! Have a purple and red week everyone! Love to all, Merry
